Hey there,

Just thought I would introduce myself quick. I’ve been a long time fan of 1967–1972 C10s and I’m currently working on a long-term 1968 project for my dad, but in the meantime, last March, I was given a 1973 K10 purchased by my father-in-law brand new, but has been sitting in their barn on the farm since 1997 shortly before he passed.

It is absolutely a farm truck and has the rust to prove it, although thankfully the cab is in good shape as well as the interior. Some friends and I spent three days last March reviving the truck and driving it from its graves back to Omaha Nebraska where I live. After getting it running with really not all that much effort required, replacing the front brake hoses/calipers, new fuel line, and other general quick maintenance, it’s a solid runner.

It’s currently got a laundry list of things that I’m going to do including a rough country 2 inch lift, new wheels/tires, replace the air conditioning components that aren’t working, new dual exhaust, and who knows what else.

A couple of pictures attached. One in the barn the day we went to revive it a year ago, and another just the other day.

Looking forward to what comes from this project. Likely will never be sold because sentimental value, so I’m going to enjoy it.

Brian

Welcome!
Sweet truck!
I swear, if I doo up another square, I’m going with the OG ‘73 look and getting rid of the drip rails! Regardless of year.
